To my beloved Vesta.
Miss, I'm a Pensive Protoplasm,
Born in some prc-lrstoric chrism.
I iri'l my humble fellow men
A. re hydrogen and oxygen.
And nitrogen, and carbon, loo.
And so is Jane, an 1 so are you.
In stagnant waters swam our brothers
And sisters, but we've manv others,
Among them animalculae,
And lizard's eggs — so, you see,
My darling Vesia, show no pride,
Nor turn coqurtti.-h head aside,
Our pedigrees, as thus made out.
Are no great things to boast about.
The only comfort teems to be
Is this — philosophers agree
That how a protoplasm 's made
Is mystery ou ,v ide their trade.
And we aro parts, so say the sages,
Of 1 ft come down from long pist ages.
So let us haste in Hymen's bands
To join our Pr toplastic h mds,
And spend our gay organic life.
A happy man and happy wife.
By D. M. W.
Not a small part of the wisdom
possessed by men consists in ac-
quaintance with the connections
and dependencies of things. A
knowledge of isolated facts is of
little value. Unless we know what
relation one event bears to another
we might about as well be igno-
rant of both. One Mind has
formed the plan of the universe,
and in our world nothing can be
named so minute as not to form a
part of one stupendous whole.
Cause and effect are seen every-
where. A cause is that which
produces change; and while there
is one great First Cause, there are
multitudes of creatures, depend-
ent indeed for their own existence,
yet while upheld, truly causes in
their turn. We can create nothing,
but we can observe what is about
us, and thus enlarge our enjoy-
ments, and increase our power to
Thousands of years have passed
since man was first formed, yet
we may be sure that only a begin-
ning has been made in exploring
the works of God. The relations
existing between things remain es-
sentially the same from age to age.
The "ordinances of heaven" hold
on their way, paying no heed to
what we call the "mutations of
time,'' and working out their re-
sult with unvarying exactness, and
a certainty which is absolute. The
laws of health and growth among
the several species in the Aegetable
and animal kingdoms, are the same
as at the beginning.
The violation of the order of
God's empire is what introduces
confusion and occasions distress.
Our ignorance of a law we violate
can not shield us from any part
of the penalty. The lad, who ig-
norant of the relation between fire
and gunpowder, should throw the
arnirig plump oi a cigar into an
opened barrel of powder, would
suffer the same as if he had
planned the explosion. Political
economy has its laws, and the
Darty ignoring those laws must
suffer in consequence. To com-
plain of the issue would he child-
ish. We see statesmen of opposite
parties contending still about the
wisdom or the lolly of a protective
tariff. We do not infer from this
disagreement that there are no
fixed relations existing between
trade and commerce on the one
side, and national prosperity on
the other. A 1 we infer from such
discordant conclusions is that the
subject is one of difficulty, and
that the work of discovery pro-
gresses but slowly. Invention is
but the application of a formerly
unknown or neglected principle.
The propositions of Geometry
were as true before as after their
first demonstration. ''Kepler's
laws", as they are called, were a
discovery, but their use is
manifold, and open to all. "Science
from whatever motives it may be
prosecuted is in effect and in real-
ity an inquiry after God." An
Humbolt and Tyndale may indeed
in exploring nature have found no
place for a God: but such men
have labored and we are entered
into their labors. If wisdom in
artifice reflects honor upon the ar-
tificer, then the more thoroughly
nature be explored, the more of
glory will redound to Him "whose
nod was nature's birth and nature's
shield the shadow of his hand."
It is in the domain of morals
that the study of relations is most
interesting. Relations there ex-
ist — law rules. Speaking figura-
tively, we may "affirm of morals
what was long 1 ago declared of
matter — "-God hath ordered ail
things in measure, number and
weight." If authors on Moral
Science as Dymond and Paley
differ in respect to the principles
which should regulate conduct we
must not marvel, since the chemist
even dealing in dead matter, has
but made a beginning in the work
of discovery. Right and wrong
never exchange places, Moral
distinctions are immutable. What
men sow they reap. Ill choice in-
sureth fate, and there is no escape.
To be carnally minded is death, we
are told, while to be spiritually
minded is life and peace. There
is that giveth and yet increaseth,
and there is that withholdeth more
than is well, yet it tendeth to pov-
erty." Let any one attempt to
search out the proof of these
statements, and he will find an in-
teresting work on his hands. If
there be difficulty connected with
such investigations the comprehen-
sive views obtained will amply re-
pay him. Let him to the extent
of his power prove all things, and
then hold fast to that which is
good. It is a good tree which
bears good fruit, and on the other
hand a wicked law, or vicious in-
stitution grinds out its grist of
cursedness, whatever may be the
opinions or prejudices of men
about the matter. To write "good
anger' on the devil's horns changes
not the nature of the fiend. To
make the whiskey traffic legal,
abates not a drop from the deluge
of woes with which it floods a
land. It was sometimes said that
slavery was from God; but slavery
wrought out its legitimate results,
cursing the very soil that bore it
up, and its end was as a devour-
The history of an age is proph-
ecy of that which is to come, just
because like causes are at work.
The man may be predicted from
the character of the boy. A
thorough knowledge of currents
and cross-currents of the present
time would give us great skill in
predicting the future.
The history of Scotland is one
which can be read only with the
deepest interest, resembling as it
does, a fairy tale or work of the
imagination, more than a chroni-
cle of the words and achievements
of men mortal a» ourselves. Every
plain, every hill and mountain,
every glen and valley, every stream
that winds its way among the
banks and braes of the Highlands,
every lake nestled among the hills,
and every rock and crag has its
own peculiar history, and many
traditions and legends of exploits
done hard by connected therewith.
As regards its scenery we know
it is unsurpassed in grandeur;
and since even to aliens it seems
so enchanting, we can not wonder
at the boundless love and burning
patriotism which, it is plain, has
ever characterized the Scot. And
again, since romantic scenery, and
a chivalrous knighthood are the
favorite inspirations of the muse,
and love and patriotism the prin-
cipal objects of her attention, we
need not think it strange that the
followers of Erato have been many
and gifted in "Auld Scotland."
As long ago as the times of Caesar,
we read there were numerous har-
pers among the then barbarian
inhabitants of the unknown island
the Romans traveled so far to sub-
jugate, who by their fierce, ani-
mated music, accompanied by in-
spiriting battle songs, moved the
arm of the warrior to do deeds,
and win victories which caused
the ruthless invaders to tremble
and be astonished at the wonderful
courage exhibited by their adver-
saries. Nor in the piping times
of peace was the minstrel placed
aside as were the implements of
war, for his services were then
demanded to cheer the quiet which
his harp had assisted in bringing
about; for the ancients were as
susceptable of being moved and
excited by the songs of their na-
tive land, as our soldiers of twelve
years ago were of being inflamed
with patriotic zeal and undaunted
courage, by hearing the army band
play '"Rally round the Flag,''
"Hail Columbia'' or "Yankee
Aa Scotland advanced in refine-
ment, she attracted the attention
of the reading world by her num-
ber of vigorous, original poets, as
much as she did 'he attention of
trie world of chivalry bv her con-
tinued and noble efFoits for inde-
pendence. James the First, of
the unhappy family of the Stuarts,
was, as is generally conceded, the
most brilliant poet of the fifteenth
century. The disasters and mis-
fortunes which naturally befell
him as a Stuart — for fate was
againstthat family — seemed rather
to brighten his mind than other-
wise. His works, although writ-
ton before the invention of print-
ing, were widely read and
applauded. lie was, in his age,
the moon, aud the rest of the
poets but satellites. Next came
Gawin Douglas, brinerinsr with
him such poetry as we might ex-
pect from a Douglas, strongly
expressed, warlike and yet softened
at intervals by the soft touch of
love. No wonder is it that so
long as Scottish minstrelsy existed,
the language of Douglas was
treasured away as household words
in the hearts of his countrymen.
Robert Iienryson, and Blind
Harry had also the disadvantage
of living at the time when the pen
was the only printer of books, and
for this reason we know little of
them; but the chronicles of the
time say they were bright and shin-
ning lights in the galaxy of authors:
especially is mention made of the
touching pathos of the latter 's
poems. At the dawning of the
sixteenth century dawned the
genius of another, who, had it not
been for the unfavorable circum-
stances surrounding him, would
have been classed with the"favored
few." As it is, William Dunbar
is called the "Chaucer of Scotland,"
and compared withnone of his coun-
trymen save Burns.
The beginning of the 17th
century found Allen Ramsey,
writing new songs and re-writing
old ones, thus aiding very materi-
ally to place Scotland far in ad-
vance of the rest of the world in
this kind of poetry, according to
Hallam. Again, the 18th centu-
discovered a youth named James
Thompson, in a retired portion
of Scotland, making his first
obeisance to the muse. Seasons
will be no more when his master-
piece, "The Seasons," will be
forgotten. James McPherson, who
claimed to have collected fragments
of verse while traveling in the
Highlands, calling them the works
of Ossian. although undoubtedly,
he himself was the author, was a
Scot. Of all queer, weird poetry
it is the strangest, and has elicited
the admiration of all reading it.
Next in order we find Robert
Burns, nature's truest, simplest
and yet profound poet; be, upon
upon whom the mantle of all the
great poets preceeding him, fell,
combining to make him as perfect
as it is possible to become in the
sphere in which he moved and
labored. Taking him from the
plow on to the time of his death,
he has undoubtedly done a life's
work for which the literary world
cannot be too grateful. Although
a reckless man, he wrote many
poems the very models of purity.
He is the pride of Scotland, the
one whose words are engraved on
tablets more enduring than ada-
mant — the hearts of all his coun-
trymen. But little below Burns
in worth and reputation as a poet
stands Sir Walter Seott. who nob-
ly sustained his country's fame in
both prose and poetry. His
works present a commingling of
all styles, and are particularly
noted for the force of diction
easily apparent in them.
These we have mentioned ; re
but a very small part of those of
whose poetic genius Scotland is
justly proud •. for scarcely a ham-
let nestles on her bosom, unless
it holds green the memory of
some ''follower of the muss." The
great secret of the irresistable at-
traction lurking in each line of
the poetry of Scotland, is the per-
fect simplicity of the style, treating
of objects which nature's observers
and students in that clime find
around them everywhere. Un-
hampered by the stiff style obtain-
ed by the neglect of the study of
nature and too close study of books
elsewhere so prevalent, they tell
their story in the unaffected ryth-
mic language of every day peasant
life, and not in the formal lan-
guage of a court, striving rather
to find an entrance to the heart
than to be admired through its
beauty. Yes, when wearied with
care and fatigued by labor, it is
not to the pages of a Milton, Young
or Pope that we go for a release
from our situation ; but O Scotland!
it is the incense of thy songs that
relieves our condition, and makes
us forgetful of the rest of the

The Bainonian Society gave a
public exercise on the 25th of this
month. A large audience — larg-
er than has attended any previous
society exercise — crowded the
college chapel to running over.
The Society was called to order
by the President, Miss Cora Bart-
lett, and the minutes read by the
Secretary, Miss Biddle. Miss
Grade Lord as declaimer was the
first to appear before the house.
She delivered her piece, "My
Ship," with great clearness of e-
nunciation and with effect. Next
also as declaimer, Miss Lizzie
Brown ascending the stage, recited
"■Dolly Sullivan,'' well meriting
the applause she received. Then
Miss Nellie Lord favored us with
a composition in German. Some
of the old gentlemen on the back
seats thought that she did not pro-
nounce distinctly enough! Next
on the programme was the discus-
sion on the question "Should
woman be allowed to preach?'
The debaters were,
Sallie Henry, Mary Bartlett,
Sara Silsby. Belle Porter.
Rarely has a debate engaged
the attention of its audience more
than did this one. The speeches
were not only bristling with argu-
ment, but also couched in the fin-
est of language. The decision
was awarded in favor of the Neg-
ative. The Bamohian Review, tie
organ o1 the Society, was read by
the editors Misses Maggie Henry
and Mollie Biddle. Much of the
paper was of real literary merit,
and all were unanimous in pro-

The 28th of January being the
Day of Prayer for Colleges, the
regular exercises were laid aside,
and the day left free for apropri-
ate public meetings and private
prayer. At ten o'clock there was
an interesting meeting in the
chapel, led by the President, and
at three the young men and ladies
held separate meetings of prayer.
At night, also, there was another
meeting, at which the President
delivered a short sermon.
Since the Day of Prayer, nearly
every day, either in the chapel or
at the rooms of the students, short
prayer-meetings led by the Presi-
dent or carried on entirely by the
students, have been kept up, from
time to time varied with short dis-
courses by the President.

1872, and left in 1874 to teach
school in Cade's Cove. Here he
won an estimable young lady, and
located as teacher of a school hard
by. His life is somewhat veiled
in mystery. Little or nothing is
known of his history before his
arrival here. He came and went
quietly, aud was of a retiring
disposition. Possessing a good
mind, he stood well in his classes.
